It’s safe to say Miranda Lambert has become accustomed to life in the spotlight. After launching her career on Nashville Star in 2003 when she was just 20 years old, the Texas native has essentially grown up in front of fans’ eyes. They’ve seen her through some of the best of times and some of the worst of times, but through it all, Lambert has remained true to herself.
One thing Lambert has become known for is her tell-it-like-it-is attitude. Never one to hold her thoughts and opinions back, the superstar recently shared her opinion on social media. Though she remains active on her various accounts, especially Instagram, the award-winning singer/songwriter admits she’s not a big fan of it.
“I’m confused by all of that,” she confessed to Cincinnati.com. “I’m not a social media person, but I don’t have a choice, because it’s part of what we do now, but I also feel like I’m not trying to hide who I am or what’s going on in my life. People are going to pry anyways, and so I’d rather it be my news than fake news, so I feel like lately, I’ve been a little more open because people are going to dig more if you try to keep anything quiet at this point.”
“It’s just an odd world to me,” she continued. “I’m 35, and I didn’t start my career with social media as part of this whole journey, and I’m still trying to get used to it.”
Lambert often shares photos and videos of her home life, including her Brendan McLoughlin, on Instagram. Fans can follow her HERE.
Miranda Lambert is gearing up to release her much-anticipated new album, Wildcard, on November 1. She’s currently in the midst of her all-female Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour and recently revealed plans to hit the road next year on her 2020 Wildcard Tour.
